I go back and forth on whether a maternity blazer is actually necessary, since in my most recent pregnancy I wore my regular blazers just fine up until week 38 or so. (Admittedly, I only gained 20 lbs, and then had a 10 lb baby, so there is that.) But I definitely have gotten a lot of wear out of the two maternity blazers I bought for my first pregnancy, and sometimes knowing that everything fits the way it’s supposed to (and buttons can button, etc) is a priceless boost of confidence. This stretchy knit version from Tart looks great, and is available in five colors at Nordstrom — gray, ikat, black, navy, and denim blue. They’re all around $128. Tart Essential Blazer
